itaas Announces Test Suite


Interactive-TV-service provider itaas inc. announced a new service that provides remote access to digital headends for developing and testing interactive-TV applications.

The software allows interactive-TV developers to access full digital headends without leaving their facility.

That will pave the wave for developers to download and test client applications from remote headends, saving time and money, itaas said.

Access is powered by itaas’ remote virtual-hub gateway that resides at a client’s facility and provides access to the itaas headend over a dedicated Internet-protocol link.
